A pigeon was believed to have been shot with a pellet gun in Wrexham.

RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a member of the public who heard a shot found the severely injured pigeon in her garden on School Lane, Coedpoeth.

The pigeon was left in a 'very bad condition' with one of its wings completely broken and hanging off.

To prevent further suffering, the RSPCA put the pigeon to sleep.

RSPCA inspector Rachael Davies said: "It is concerning that a pigeon was shot in a residential area.

“Such unnecessary and callous attacks can cause a lot of pain and distress to birds."

Anyone with information should contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018."
